Forum: etree Subject: Posts that are not generally helpful

Erich,

My name is Brewster Kahle. I am the digital librarian of the Internet Archive. We provide these services as a public service. The forums are used for those posting questions, answers, and announcements that are generally helpful to our patrons. While this is not an easy to draw line, it is often quite easy in practice.

If we find the comments on these forums are not generally helpful to our user base, then we will delete posts, and limit those posters from posting.

we have done this to spam already.

Please keep your comments in line with those one would expect in libraries.

If you would like to discuss this directly, I can be reached at brewster@archive.org

Thank you.

-brewster

Thanks for the classic librarian's polite tap on the shoulder, Brewster!

The front page of archive.org does show the most recent post topics right up front, and as a mom I've been sensitive to that at times. It would be a shame to have the same page that links to the ICDL be one that gets caught by NetNanny all the time. ;)
